Man On The Moon Guitar Chords – R.E.M.

In this Man On The Moon guitar chords lesson video, I will show you how to play this great R.E.M. song off of their incredible Automatic For The People album.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

The chords used in "Man On The Moon" are mostly basic open position chords with a B minor barre chord thrown in there as well. So hopefully, nothing that will keep you from getting this song down relatively quickly.

I am just focusing on the underlying chord progressions and not covering all of the slide guitar parts or guitar fills.

I will go through each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this great R.E.M. song! Carl...
